    Anonymous Employee in Costa Mesa, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at NDS (Costa Mesa, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Received a phone call from HR/Staffing person. She went over my resume and just had me ranks my skills from 0-10 and asked me a little about myself. Received another phone call from her to schedule phone interview with manager. Had 30 minute interview with manager which seemed to go well which ended in the discussion of bringing me in for an in-person interview. That same friday the HR person called (which I missed) and left me a message. Returned call on Friday afternoon - nothing. Called again on the following Tuesday - nothing. So I left it a t that for at least 2 weeks. I get a phone call stating that I am no longer under consideration as if we were playing "phone tag" for weeks. Poor communication all together.

    Company requires idiots to fillup the joint; every once in a while, a skilled engineer accidently joins the company. Company requires PERFECT TRW and credit scores. They pretend that the company has important secrets to protect. Do not try to join unless you want to be screened by CREDIT SCORE and SECURITY COMPANY and 3 or 4 letters of REFERENCE and calls to past employers. 30+day process NDS painful.

    • Are you willing to take continous and ongoing bonings from your direct manager, in order to continue employment?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    So long as you were willing to take recurring from your bosses, they were willing to pay. Start as high as you think they can bear, because you will get HARD and OFTEN, should you take job offer. Consider high 110's. High 120's are for mgt. Architechs might ask mid 140's. Few senior mgr make $300K+, but rare.

    IPTV Integration Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NDS (Staines, England (UK)).

    Interview

    There were several rounds. First, a phone interview with their private agency (Rockfish), then a phone interview with someone from NDS, then a personal interview with HR and with people from my future team, and then a personal interview with the UK head, Derek Nottingham. Finally, a small HR interview after I started working to get my permission for vetting. The team interview was in Staines. They were most interested in my past jobs, I had to tell them about the details of a 3play IPTV network that I maintained at my previous employer, and justify my decisions. There were basic technical questions about using the linux text console (grep/find/more, firewalls, how to set the IP address and nameservers of a Red Hat box, how to enable/disable/add/remove services; they were surprised to hear that there were utilities like "ntsysv" and "service" to do this). I had to travel to Chandler's Ford for the interview with Derek, the UK head. He asked me about my education, my degree, my personal situation, my plans and then he led me through their CF offices. I guess at that point I was already in a safe situation, he just wanted to see me before he signed the papers.
